    Worst Airports?

    Chicago O’Hare is the worst!
  3. This beauty was gifted to me by the always generous @Fatshotbud 898s are my favorite cigars, but it’s probably been over a year since my last one. @Fatshotbud recently gave me a Partagas de Partagas No. 1, which is also a Lonsdale with similar 898 characteristics. The format just feels elegant to me. The cigar starts off with a serious punch. The initial 5-10 mins retrohale is very spicy, making it almost too painful. But then the cigar mellows out. Interestingly, this 898 started out with some orange flavor that turned to lemon and lemon zest. I had never got citrus in an 898 before. The spicyness moved to cinnamon and then by about half way through was overshadowed by cream and leather. The cigar ended with strong cream and leather and a slight cocoa near finish. The cigar had some interesting movement from starting off like a spice bomb, moving to a flavor bomb, and then becoming very mellow just past the halfway point. It was an interesting smoke that I give 91-92 points. Thankgs again @Fatshotbud!

    Best method band removal?

    You’re supposed to remove the band???
  5. I honestly have never noticed an issue other than faint cardboard smell on a few that didn’t, to me, effect flavor. But, based on comments here, I don’t see any downside to removing, especially if there’s an alternative box/slb for storage.

    Des Dieux are terrible. Just forget about them. You don’t want any of those. Putrid. 😬😬😎

    My one experience doing this was terrible. Upon entering Mexico from Cuba, my cigars were held ransom until I paid about $250 in cash to the agent. Not having much cash left on me after Cuba, I had to go to an ATM, which, of course, none of them in the closest 2 terminals worked. I finally got the cash and paid the arbitrary amount after about 1 hour delay. And, of course, 1 box was mysteriously missing. Ive heard of others with similar stories. My experience is that Mexico scans every bag coming in, so difficult to get passed without being noticed.

    Whatever it is, make it a 50-cab!
  10. well, just today, i paid the in-flight fee for wifi to make sure i had access to 2424.... justify it by "working" as well...
  11. I find the RJ Churchill an excellent cigar, even when young. HDM DC as well. Young, i'd take those two. With more than a couple of years, the SW and Lusi's really shine.
  12. I’ve always enjoyed the Juan Lopez No. 2 on the course.
  13. Pulled this one out from the depths of the humidor. Strong barnyard smell. Started off with with a woody mushroom taste that developed into a salty mushroom taste with a classic twang. Draw was a little tight, and opened it up with a perfect draw. good cigar. 90 points.

  15. Yup - natural black walnut. Good eye. It’s a custom size, but is basically the size of an M-Plus.
